Since 2011 the backstage acoustic sets have been an exciting added bonus to the already popular Festival. This year Butserfest are giving you and a friend the chance to win a special wristband that’ll gain you access into our Acoustic Shack.
Simply visit their Facebook page to enter for a chance to win! (Please note that access to acoustic sets does not include event tickets)
